2002 Toyota Prius 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Prius is probably "the" car for a geeky engineer like me: Drive by wire throttle, hybrid engine, re-generative brake, computerized engine display, etc. You also get the build quality of a Toyota. It may not be a big deal for its gas mileage nowaday as gas price is just a bit over $1. But as a VULEV (very ultra low emission vehicle), I feel a lot better driving this car around.

Best Features

Large center storage bin, computerized display, lazy-boy seats.

Worst Features

The shifter is placed in an awkward position. Put it on the steering wheel or paddle will be very interesting. Better standard equipment and more options are welcome.
